Niranjan Raghu replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion What are Your Compositional Goals for 2015?
"I'm gonna get a keyboard and start learning to play it. Possibly go attend a piano class. I wanted to do a cello, but I was advised that it would take years to get to play strings right, so I'm going for a piano. That, and improve my right hand…"

"I was planning to add the drums again as soon as the multi part cello starts around 1:38, only this time, they are less intrusive, because looking back, I felt the snares were a bit too powerful.

I shall definitely apply that when I write more to…"

"Thank you! :) That was more than I dared hope: a good atmosphere. I realise that the drums are very... intrusive, but as I mentioned before, it was on the spur of the moment. I ought to work on the strings and the drums. Thank you again!

"Hi Niranjan, I basically liked this. The atmospheric effect starting around :57 was very effective. I liked the piano opening also. Personally, I can do without the big-ass drums, but I realize they are in vogue. All in all, as a venture into hybrid…"

Anand replied to Niranjan Raghu's discussion Question about string articulation use.
"Hi,

As far as I understand detache is alternate bowing without the bow leaving the string. So this is neither legato nor is it an attack note like staccato or marcato...but. just simple alternate bowing without an accent.

There are plenty of…"

Alexey Arkhipenko replied to Niranjan Raghu's discussion Question about string articulation use.
"Hi, Anand!

This sounds interesting. Can you give the link?
What exactly do you mean by detache in comparison to Sustained and Marcato notes?
What do you think of using separate Sustained notes in succession? Anand said:
Interesting, in another…"

Niranjan Raghu replied to Jacob Read's discussion Nomad's Journey
"Hey, This is a *very* good track. I'd really suggest that you add a sporadic, acoustic guitar rhythm at the slow part 2:40, or maybe a bassline, but I think that a bassline would destroy the beauty you have going there, and I think that rise in the…"

"Hello Niranjan,
I found some interest in this, particular the opening piano part. But it feels raw, like a piece that is not fully formed. Also, it just stops, there isn't really an ending."
